Tejas (931) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Perfect 5 on appearance. Enormous frothy white head. Nice continued lacing on the glass. Light spicy peppery flavors along with a little bitterness. Drinkability is great. The 9% is hidden extremely well. I could put many of these away.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - SEP 5, 2005
(on bottle)Light metallic/medical sent, like gaze right out of the packet. Plus some fat yeast esters, allmost weissen-like. Has an overwhelming alcoholic warmth and a burning hoppyness, along with a very hihg carbonation. Sweet, cloying finish; a very unbalanced beer. Bad bottle?

CapFlu (4815) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2005
(33cl bottle) Sampled at Lubiere’s on August 11, 2005. F*cking huge, foamy, white head with an amber, highly carbonated body filled with sediment chunks. White pepper and hops. Very tart hoppiness and redlicorice tones.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle. Nice fruity aroma leads to a spicy flavor with lots of sweet malt, fruit and firm bitterness. The bitterness becomes a bit distracting, as you drink the beer, as it begins to remind me more of the bitterness in dandelion or Campari. The mouth feel is fine, but the overpowering co2 tends to detract, as it steals some of the flavor. The looks are, as always, with De Dolle, excellent, with a hazy golden color and a wonderful rocky head, that seems to last forever.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) 5% ABV in my version. Pale golden, slightly hazy with a dense and very white head with some sediment at the bottom. Fresh and fruity character with a way too dominating bitterness that overturns the balance. Pity in an otherwise interesting beer. 230699

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2005
Hazy orange beer with a big dense white head. Malty, straw like aroma with a hoppy note. Spicy, yeasty flavor with a light alcohol touch in a peppery finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Bottled Sample @ sick_boy282’s Post-Real Ale Fest Mini Tasting
Yellow/bronze color, nice creamy pale white head. Nose of light banana and yeast, strong fruit esters with a well rounded character. The terroir isn’t as pronounced as usual with Belgian beers. Thanks Alex!

joergen (23767) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 Bottled. Hazy golden coloured with a huge and lacing white head. Fruity aroma with notes of pepper, spices, yeast and alcohol. Peppery flavour of fruits, yeast, spices and hops. Peppery finish.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Pours a blonde hue with a frothy white head. Aromas of spice, wheat an a light alcohol burn. Flavors of spice honey, a light bitterness and a nice floral finish.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 14, 2005
Pours with a cloudy golden body topped by a medium thick to thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly sweet and citrusy with a slight yeastiness and some underlying spice. Medium bodied, slightly dry and warming.
